This is disturbing.
A parliamentary committee is trying to get TikTok and Rumble to demonetise #RussellBrand, even though he hasn’t been arrested, charged or convicted of any crime whatsoever.
The rule of law has been abandoned in the UK.

Rumble are the only niggas in these tubes keeping it real.
Seriously – it’s the only platform that follows 2016 rules on censorship.
And now they’re following 2018 rules on rape hoaxes.
Rumble, a video-sharing platform used by Russell Brand, has accused a parliamentary committee of “deeply inappropriate” behaviour after it asked whether the site would suspend payments to the comedian.
Caroline Dinenage, the Conservative chair of the culture, media and sport committee, wrote this week to Rumble’s chief executive, Chris Pavlovski, to express concern that Brand “may be able to profit from his content on the platform”.
Rumble posted its response on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, claiming that it was “deeply inappropriate and dangerous” of parliament to “attempt to control who is allowed to speak on our platform or to earn a living from doing so”.
There is obviously a threat inside of the demand.
Probably, a platform like Rumble can’t really exist very much longer. They will either crack or be cracked.
But it’s nice for now.
Dinenage wrote to Rumble after YouTube announced on Tuesday that Brand would no longer receive advertising revenues from his videos.
Dinenage asked whether Brand was able to make money from his videos on Rumble, including his denials of accusations against him, and if so, whether the platform would follow YouTube’s lead.
“We would like to know whether Rumble intends to join YouTube in suspending Mr Brand’s ability to earn money on the platform,” Dinenage wrote. The MP also asked what Rumble was doing to ensure that content creators did not use the platform to undermine the welfare of victims of “inappropriate and potentially illegal behaviour”.
Brand is apparently not planning on fleeing the country, and is instead choosing to go to prison forever.
It’s a shame, but hey – he can’t say I didn’t warn him.
